Whilst Grassroots Football has been granted exemption from the ‘Rule Of 6’ and ‘Lockdown Instructions’ the Management Committee of The West Midlands Christian Football League have deliberated long and hard about whether our League should commence, especially in light of the Local Lockdown announced last Friday regarding Birmingham, Sandwell and Solihull.
We felt that the overriding factor that the heath, safety and well being of anyone involved within our League is of paramount importance. With that in mind, we decided that we would keep the postponement of fixtures in place for a further two weeks and review the situation regarding commencing our fixtures on the 2nd October.
Unlike a lot of other ‘local’ Leagues, our teams come from various areas of the West Midlands and we felt that this also had to be factored into our decision making. Participants may have ended up travelling from an area under ‘local lockdown’ into other areas which were not. Something that we believe is currently being advised not to do if possible.
A further update will be posted on here the week beginning Monday, 28th September.
Be Blessed and stay safe,
